Huntington Beach Rep. Dana Rohrabacher's older brother, Kim, died Thursday morning of complications from cancer at Fountain Valley General Hospital, the congressman's office said.

Kim Rohrabacher, the congressman's only sibling, was 62 and lived in Whittier. A graduate of the University of Redlands, he served eight years in the Marine Corps Reserve and worked as a transportation specialist, mainly for Northrop Aircraft.

Rep. Rohrabacher flew in from Washington, D.C., Wednesday night to be with his brother, whom he said was known for his "generosity and charitable spirit."
